Fretblanket - The Modern Man lyrics

Your rating:
Tell me I'm your everything
All that you could need
A saviour and a hero
Lie to me at least ;)

Tell me I need challenges
A life full to the brim
And a chorus line of motivators
To get me by and in.

I could do with a break
A holiday
A stretch of yellow sun
I need to hear the ocean
It keeps me safe from harm

I love the way I feel the earth beneath my feet
The feeling I'm being swept along with it

Give me all your troubles
I can take the strain
I have never sensed it (?)
I can feel no pain.

Watch me from a distance
See me buckle and break
Knowing it would happen-
Knowing your escape

What about the today?
The Modern Man
And I've come for my Times
Nothing to declare except this fantasy of mine.

You make it too late
Save myself
Stop the other lot
To kill the killer instinct
Suffocate the lot

Give me everything...
Give me everything
(you've got)

Can't get through,
With mouth open and mind closed.
Can't get through,
With mouth open and mind closed.

I still have tomorrow
I can wait that long
I don't have to sing a wrong note
Or run out of breath before.

I  have heard the angel speak
Crawling on all fours
I don't listen to myself
I can't hear me anymore.

I see the darkened skies
Crashing to the earth
I don't have much to myself
I can't stand it any-more!
